If it's in the UK, that's a fantastic price when you think what dslrs were going for not so long ago.
Had a call from Mifsud today, the 40D arrives tomorrow.(£599.00 then £100.00 back from canon) Thanks one and all for the help and advice.Jaksmac the link was a great help. Hope to upload soon with some images from the new camera.
Look at it this way: if you get at least five years' use out of the 40D, that's just £30 extra you've paid per year. That's just a round of drinks down here in London. You've made the right choice!
£10 per year actually....
I doubt he will keep it 5 years.At the moment technology changes so fast it would have to be upgraded in 2 years
Well I kept my 300D for 4 years, and think that 5 years will be possible for the 40D. and then you have the differences to think of, handling etc.
I am guessing his 10D is 4 to 5 years old, and why not? Lets face it many of us need no more that 10 or 12mp, and if we like the images today. A 10D can still produce good images today.
John, my comment is bit of tounge in cheek as I have had my 300D since 2004 and have now just upgraded to 20D

LOL. And I'm using a Nikon D1H... six years old and still shooting lovely 2.7MP images. Who needs 10MP+!

Depends on how big you want to print.
It depends on your individual needs and how mch use your camera gets. Mine rarely last more than 2 years. Just had a canon MKIIN develop the well known banding at high ISO's. The solution is a new imager unit at £950 plus a couple of hundred labour. It's 2 years old and has done over 600,000 frames so it has been written off and replaced by another MKIII.
Oh yeah? I'm still using my 300V - and still no sign of banding. Not even Billy Cotton! LOL!
Gosh I thought Jas had gone to sleep - but he's awakey................waaaaaakey!

LOL! Like my cats I've always got one eye open!
(the viewfinder one, actually )
Just bought a 40D. what a step up from the 30D.I must admit I didnt expect to find that much difference. Handling is better, viewfinder is better, eventhe shutter release seems quieterThe price its at the moment its a giveaway.
